Educational Evaluation and Early School Leaving Prevention

Evaluation is a dynamic feature of any educational process. Ιt begins before any teaching and learning activity, continues during the whole activity and finishes after the end οf the activity. In the case of the prevention of early school leaving, evaluation is strongly related to the pupils' needs assessment before their engagement in a learning activity in order to identify their learning difficulties. Throughout evaluation teachers can identify pupils' learning difficulties and point out what kind of intervention is appropriate for each pupil in order to prevent early school leaving. Teachers need to be acquainted with the modern meaning of evaluation, evaluation types and forms, evaluation models, techniques and tools in order to become able to use them effectively in their school classes to achieve, among other educational objectives, the prevention of early school leaving.

In this Module, an attempt is made to approach educational evaluation in a theoretical and practical way.
The first Chapter is intended to present and analyze the meaning of evaluation, its distinctions and its necessity in the modern educational reality. In the second Chapter a presentation of the types of evaluation is made and in the third one various forms of evaluation are described. In the fourth Chapter the main evaluation methods are presented and in the fifth Chapter the evaluation subjects are analyzed. In the sixth Chapter a description of the evaluation techniques is made and in the seventh one an analysis of the meaning and content of the meta-cognitive evaluation is attempted. The Module is completed with the eighth Chapter, which includes an analysis of the meaning of the skills that are necessary for a successful issue of any educational activity.
